When purchasing hunting clothing, instead of buying multiple items that I may only wear a few times I try to get a couple staple items that can be worn all season long and on multiple types of hunts. Early season hunting and spring turkey hunting is usually pretty warm. During that time a light weight, moisture wicking top is my go-to piece. Carrying that same top into late season as a layering piece is a good way to get the most out of your gear.
The Prois Ultra Long Sleeve Shirt and Prois Ultra Backcountry Shirt are both great options to wear alone during the warmer, early season hunts and are great layering pieces for when the weather turns cold. Both of these tops are constructed of 100% polyester fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. They are both athletic cut and also have thumbholes at the cuff line for added warmth and camo coverage.
While the Ultra Long Sleeve shirt has more of a mock turtleneck, the Ultra Backcountry shirt has a neck zipper to allow venting in warmer weather. It also has a 3 compartment lumbar pocket system that is perfect for holding game calls, gloves, hand warmers and other hunting gear!
I keep both of these tops in my gear bag year round as they are quiet, comfortable, easy to move in, and lightweight, making them a great stand-alone top or a non-bulky layering piece. They are perfect for archery season, rifle season, turkey hunting and upland hunting. Both are available in Realtree AP, Realtree Max-1 camo paterns, and Black; sizes XS, SM, Med, LG and XL.
